I was told never to miss a dose or it would lose all of effectiveness. Is this true?
Is it true that if I miss a dose of lisinopril my blood pressure would jump from 150 to over 200?

It maybe due to some other reasons, if one misses a dose the BP would not shoot up from 150 to 200, the general missed dose instructions are: If you do not take your lisinopril as scheduled, take your next dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next scheduled dose, skip the missed one and continue with normal dosing. Never take a double dose!
Please do talk to your doctor who prescribed the med. take care, best wishes!
